ICA and WORLD MUSIC/CRASHarts PRESENT
Keyboard master John Medeski thrives on the unpredictable, a trait that has kept his work with the trailblazing trio Medeski Martin & Wood (MMW) fresh and surprising for more than twenty years. With A Different Time, his first solo piano project, Medeski once again takes his sound in a completely unexpected direction – unexpected even to him. This new album presents an introspective, meditative collection, consisting mostly of Medeski’s own compositions and improvisations—a different side of Medeski’s prodigious artistry, one which he was initially reluctant to display. Medeski performs selections from A Different Time at the ICA on Thursday, December 12.
